Next big step... 5K!

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

I just registered for my first 5K on May 26 - one day before I turn 50! I know I'll be mostly walking - if not all walking - but it is a big step for me to do something in public like that. I just hope I don't embarrass my 13-year-old son, who is the real runner of the family. He will probably place in his age-group then come back and pick me up - but that's OK! I am doing it!

    Nice! I did a 5k 2 years ago and I'm thinking of doing another. I walked it in under an hour which was my goal. It was fun to increase my mile time and see progress. I was nervous about walking in front of folks but there were so many people and supporters that it didn't matter. Super thing to do! Can't wait to hear how it goes.

    he should be proud of is not about winning it, it is about doing it for good cause.
    and the added bonus is that you are doing it for your health as well.

    Way to Go!
